When Recycling Goes Too Far: The 'Bright Side Of Death' Computer Mouse

I love art and I love gadgets, but this one... I don't know.  The gadget in question is a computer mouse made from ah... uh... a dead...

 

 

... goat.   A goat skull and what seems to be a brass bell, some kind of brass pipe (maybe a connecting joint) and a bit of decorative brass too.

 

 

 

 

The artist/designer of the Bright Side of Death, Ivan Mavrović, says that the goat died a natural death.  So we can breathe a small sigh of relief that the poor soul was not sacrificed for this computer mouse.  But, as innovative and artistic as the goat skull mouse is, it is not "bright;" it's eerie.  And it's taken recycling much too far!

To each his own

I've seen worse. This isn't too bad. Had he killed it himself for the purpose of a mouse...that's a different story
